Amazing news has arrived for Chicago Cubs fans, as Wrigley Field has finally been awarded its landmark status.
It’s about time! Ask any Major League Baseball fan across the country, and they’ll be quick to tell you heading to Wrigley Field is an unforgettable experience. Visiting the home stadium of the Chicago Cubs is sure to provide you with memories that will last a lifetime.
However, Wrigley Field is yet to receive its well-deserved landmark status? Well, that changed in a big way on Thursday, as it was announced that’s no longer the case. You’re not alone if you find yourself saying the following: finally.
Wrigley Field designated as a National Historic Landmark is long overdue
As you can see from the Cubs’ tweet posted above, the organization couldn’t be happier with the news coming in. Indeed, it was long overdue, as Wrigley Field was first opened in 1914 and has been an incredible place to visit ever since.
While there have been some lows for the team, there have also been some incredible highs, including winning the World Series in 2016. It was the first time in 108 years the club had won the title. It marked the third World Series win for the Cubbies.
Looking ahead, Chicago is hoping to go on a strong postseason run in 2021 and for years to come. Unfortunately because of the coronavirus pandemic, fans weren’t able to visit Wrigley Field last season. Whether or not they’ll be able to this upcoming campaign is also up in the air.
However, once Cubs supporters from all over the world can make their way back to Wrigley, they’ll be visiting a National Landmark, and no one can take that away from the city of Chicago.
